Tini’s offers various services to help users offer or seek child care services through its app, ParentsPal.  This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) sets out the policy which governs our collection of information from you and how we use the information that we collect.  This Policy applies to any users of ParentsPal, our website or our services, including those who are seeking a child care provider or those who are looking to provide child care services, and includes users of our services through any other channels, including the telephone.

Tini’s collects information about you when you use our mobile applications, websites or other online products or services (collectively, the “Services”) and through other interactions and communications you have with us.  For purposes of this Policy, the terms “Tini’s”, “us”, “we” or “our” refer to Tini’s, Inc.  “You” refers to a visitor or user of ParentsPal or our Services.

By using ParentsPal or the Services or accessing any website of ours, you consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information or other information you provide to us described in this Policy.  Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how it will be used.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to access or use ParentsPal or any other of our Services.  By accessing or using ParentsPal, you agree to this Privacy Policy.  This Policy may change from time to time.  Your continued access to or use of ParentsPal after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

Scope and Application

This Policy applies to persons anywhere in the world who use ParentsPal or any of our other Services (“User” or “Users”).

Collection of Information

Information You Provide to Us

We collect both “Personal Information” and “Non Personal Information” about you.  Personal Information is information that can be used to identify or contact you.  Non Personal Information is other information that cannot be used to identify or contact you and is not linked to Personal Information that can be used to identify you.  This type of information includes information about your activities while using the app, such as usage date, but only to the extent not linked to your Personal Information.  We collect information you provide directly to us, such as when you create or modify your account, use the Services, contact customer support, or otherwise communicate with us.  This information may include: name, email, phone number, address, gender, birth date, health information, references, profile picture, payment method, and other information you choose to provide.

You may be able to access ParentsPal through Facebook.  If you connect to ParentsPal through Facebook, we will collect, store and use any information you agreed Facebook could provide to Tini’s in accordance with this Policy.  Your agreement allowing sharing of this information with Tini’s takes place when you allow Facebook to register you for a ParentsPal account or otherwise connect to ParentsPal through Facebook.

Neither our app nor our other Services are intended for children under 13 years of age.  No one under age 13 may provide any information to or on the app or in connection with the Services.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.  If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this app or on or through any of its features/register on the app, offer any children services through the app, use any of the interactive or other features of this app or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any screen name or user name you may use.  If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.  If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at admin@tinisinc.com .

Important Information About Platform Permissions

Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the Tini’s app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the Tini’s app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Tini’s does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you provide us with consent to do so.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.  WE TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AGAINST SECURITY BREACHES.  HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF SECURITY MEASURES RELATING TO OUR APP OR SERVICES.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME THESE RISKS.

We may transfer the information described in this Policy to, and process and store it in, the United States and other countries, some of which may have less protective data protection laws than the region in which you reside. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this Policy.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you.  Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our app, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.  We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.  Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our app.  Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.  We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the app.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

It is our policy to post any changes we make to our Privacy Policy on this page.  If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal information, we will notify you by email to the primary email address specified in your account and/or through a notice on the app home page.  The date the Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page.  You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable e-mail address for you, and for periodically visiting our app and this Policy to check for any changes.
